Dr. Pepperman is an experienced clinician. He has been a physiatrist for over 25 years in the greater Hartford, CT. area. He works with other medical specialties such as orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, neurology and rheumatology. He likes to take care of patients with acute musculoskeletal injuries. He sees patients shortly after injury to complete an evaluation and treatment plan. A physiatrist is expert at musculoskeletal conditions of the large joints such as the hips, knees and shoulders as well as all spinal conditions in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral region. At Yale we have easy access to X-ray studies, same day as the evaluation if necessary. We also have the ability to order MRI/CT scan if necessary and he can perform a nerve conduction study/EMG to rule out nerve damage in the arms or legs if the patient is having pain, numbness or tingling in their extremities.
